There is much to recommend Hibiscus Garden Hotel: the pool area is great for kids and/or relaxation, a great massage service is available and it's close to Yala National Park.
On the downside there's the food. The evening buffet we endured on our first night was an object lesson in how NOT to organize or present one. Some dishes that should have been hot were served cold, some were badly prepared and some just looked uneatable. Worst dish of all was the garlic grilled chicken, which was riddled with gristle and generally slimy. Worst practice of all was the preparation of the spicy concoction based on string hoppers. The clatter of metal on metal at the heart of the restaurant is just noise pollution, a real conversation killer.
Over the two days we had one buffet breakfast (reasonable) and one served at table that arrived either cold, half-cooked or both (toast should have some brown patches at least!)
The staff are polite and helpful but between them struggle with what needs to be done.
